        A series of 6 anamorphic prints]. [Holland, ca. 1750]. Oblong 4to (23.5 x 29.5 cm). A series of 6 engraved anamorphic prints, mounted on wooden panels and coloured by a contemporary hand. With a modern cylindrical mirror for viewing them.

      - Cf. Baltrušaitis, Anamorphoses ou magie artificielle des effets merveilleux (1969); Buijnsters, Papertoys, pp. 31-32 and 371 (2 Dutch series, ca. 1720 and 2nd half of 18th century); Leeman, Anamorfosen (1975). A rare series of 6 engraved anamorphic prints, mounted on wooden panels and coloured by a contemporary hand. They are designed to be viewed in a cylindrical mirror, and each has a half circle in the plate to indicate where to stand the mirror. They contain no text, series numbers or makers' names. In the 18th century anamorphic prints became very popular and several series were available, including sets published by Elias Baeck, Hertel, Musschenbroek and Pieter Schenk, all very different from the present set.The set includes: a bust of a bald man; a man in a black three-corner hat, holding a book in his hands; a peacock; a long-horned and long-haired goat, sitting; a greyhound; and a boy or young man in a broad-brimmed hat, playing a recorder.Other sets with the same prints but different colouring are located in the collections of the Getty Library (2002.R.27; 7 prints) and the Dutch Museum Boerhaave (P02554-P02558; 5 prints). At least 2 of the 6 prints reappeared in the 19th century as part of a print series lithographed by A. Bökel.In 3 of the prints, part of a watermark can be made out: a Strasbourg coat of arms and the name of Jean Villedary in Angoulême who supplied much paper used in Holland and England. The closest matches are Heawood 1829 (Holland 1743) and 1835A (England? 1762), and Churchill 411 (London 1766). The goat with a small scuff mark in the background and the man with the book somewhat rubbed generally, but overall in very good condition, with only minor scratches not interfering with the image. Given the nature of the material, the condition is remarkably good.

        Photograph of Buzz Aldrin standing on the moon with the American flag and the lunar module, signed by all three crew members: Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins

      NASA 1969 - Color photograph (11 x 14 in.), original printed mount. Signatures lightly faded, some age-toning to mat, the photograph in fine condition. A CLASSIC SPACE PHOTOGRAPH, signed by the crew of Apollo 11, the first manned mission to the Moon: Neil Armstrong (commander), Buzz Aldrin (lunar module pilot), and Michael Collins (command module pilot). This photograph was prepared for presentation to the governor of each of the fifty states in conjunction with the tour of the Apollo 11 spacecraft and a lunar rock sample to be displayed in the state capital. This example does not bear the recipient’s name and was evidently a spare prepared in case of loss or damage. The examples presented to the governors are presumably in state archival collections. This is a very scarce large-format print of one of the most famous photographs in the history of space exploration, taken by Neil Armstrong on July 21, 1969. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Manuscript statement of vassalage signed "Era de mil e iiii centos e xxiiii annos [A.D. 1386]. Bound into the volume in front of the manuscript on vellum is a single sheet with a summary in Portuguese of the document, probably from the seventeenth century. Laid in is a transcription of the document (on a single leaf folded to large 8º, written on one side only) dated 24 August 1898, signed by G.L. Santos Ferreira.

      , , 1386. - , Vellum document (13.8 x 20.6 cm.), written on one side, four holes below text for the attachment of ties and a seal; mounted on a paper stub and bound into a later limp vellum binding with remains of ties (21.5 x 16.5 cm., some soiling, small defect on lower cover). In very good condition. Written by Martim Gonçalves. D. João's rubric at the end. Early filing notes on verso, which is otherwise blank. Bookplate of José Mindlin. *** Extremely rare example of a fourteenth-century manuscript from Portugal, written in a tidy, legible hand and bearing the rubric of D. João I, founder of the Aviz dynasty. Linguistically, this document is important as an example of a text in Portuguese. There are earlier examples of documents in Portuguese: the Album de Paleografia by Alves Dias, Oliveira Marques, and Rodrigues lists one as early as 1214-1216. But we have never seen such documents on the market since beginning to take note of such things professionally in 1969.This document is a statement of vassalage from early in D. João I's reign, when he was consolidating his support among the Portuguese nobility. Its confirmation of a land grant in the north of Portugal provides a fascinating glimpse into the workings of the feudal system. The king and the noblemen who were his vassals had mutual obligations: usually this involved the king protecting the nobleman, and the nobleman providing soldiers for the royal army. Since raising and equipping troops required money, the king often made grants of land (doações) to his nobles, such as the one described in this document. The obligations incurred by the vassal and the king would have been spelled out in a separate document. The land being given is at Mondim and Sever. "Mondim" is probably the modern Mondim de Basto, on the Rio Tâmega in the Vila Real district of Trás-os-Montes. This region, on Portugal's border with Spain, was crucial for the kingdom's defenses. The vassal to whom it is given is Martim Vasques da Cunha. Cunha (1357-1417) was ninth senhor de Tábua and sixth senhor do morgado de Tábua. Tábua is considerably further south than Mondim, in the district of Coimbra.D. João I (1358-1433) was the first ruler of the House of Aviz, which succeeded the House of Burgundy as the ruling family of Portugal in 1385. The illegitimate son of D. Pedro I, D. João was named grand master of the Order of Aviz in 1364. In 1383, his half-brother D. Fernando I (1367-1383) died without a male heir. D. Fernando's daughter Beatriz was the wife of D. Juan I of Castile; many Portuguese feared that acknowledging her claim to the throne would make Portugal a mere province of Castile. After two years of anarchy, the Côrtes declared D. João king of Portugal in 1385. Castilian armies invaded Portugal, supported by the French. The Portuguese, supported by the English (in one of the many phases of the Hundred Years' War) were repeatedly repelled by D. João and Nuno Álvares Pereira, his constable, notably at the Battle of Aljubarrota on August 14, 1385, supported by English archers, with results similar to the battles of Crécy, Poitiers, and Agincourt. The Treaty of Windsor was signed in 1386 between Portugal and England. In 1387, D. João married Philippa of Lancaster, daughter of John of Gaunt and brother of Henry IV of England (r. 1399-1413), cementing the Anglo-Portuguese Alliance that has lasted for more than six centuries. The House of Aviz ruled Portugal until 1580, when D. Sebastião died without issue.The present document was dated by the Era, whose starting year is 38 B.C. The origin of the Era is uncertain, but it was used in the Iberian Peninsula beginning in the third century A.D. and continuing through the Middle Ages. Its use faded out in Aragon and Valencia in the mid-fourteenth century, in Castile toward the end of the fourteenth century, and in Portugal in the early fifteenth century.The 1898 transcription that accompanies the document is signed by G.L. Santos Ferreira - probably Guilherme Luiz dos San [Attributes: Signed Copy]
